well made Brazilian movie
15 August 2005 | by Lady_TargaryenSee all my reviews

I am aware of the fact that Brazilian movies are not famous as the American ones,but I agree that Olga should be nominated for an Oscar, and deserves to be watched. Olga was made with a great production by the Brazilians standards, and is a beautiful and sensitive movie, showing the history of this brave Jewish and communist woman called Olga Benario.

Camila Morgado and Fernanda Montenegro are two of my favorite Brazilian actresses,and are great too in their roles. (Camila as Olga deserves applause).

The movie shows Olga's path, since she was a rich teenager to her final moments, in a concentration camp.
